So here's three beautiful tracks to keep you company these cold winter nights...

This is Martin's first EP; consisting 4 tracks of pleasing ambient noise. Sound of places unnameable in out present time, the past or even the future unless everything goes completely wrong in a way only these four tracks can imagine over 19 minutes. 041209-03: "The more I learn about how a landscape is made and transformed the more I recognize that the earth ...

|My Secret Fire - Temple Thrum [mir016] - My Secret Fire|
We're now wandering into the harsher side of electronics again, maybe not as harsh and noisy as Danny Kreutzfeldts Noiseworks 1, but still pretty nice. Temple Thrum spans over almost an hour with its three lengthy tracks. Reeling Pressure starts off where you'd expect it to start: distorted synthetic sounds, but moves into more ambient sounds but never looses focus. The Invocation is an ambient piece that grows from subtle and haunting into noisy...

|Sepulcrum Spei - MMV [mir014] - Sepulcrum Spei|
This ep is the debut of the Italian project Sepulcrum Spei. Andrea Tuffanelli created the project early in 2005 together with Edoardo Romani Capello when they were recording their main project Lucus. They're both experienced musicians with backgrounds in various underground bands. MMV is mainly very minimalistic folk played on flute, harp and percussion. This is mixied with drones, background textures and environmental samples to create a darker, sometimes almost sinister, more ambient feel.

Presence has a soundscapes sound that constantly evolves and changes slowly, always into something new...

|Mortesium - Dream state [mir001] - Mortesium|
Mortesium is a swedish ambient project, formed in 2002 by Ronny Jacobsson. Right now he's working on his first album but had time to release this little single first. This is probably not the most experimental music you'll ever hear, quite far from it actually but it's not what it's meant to be, Mortesium's is Ronnys vision of ambient, the way he thinks it should be; the sound is dark, but still relaxing and meditative with layers of strings, textures and samples...

The man behind Moxuse is Koichiro Mori. He comes from Saitama in Japan. he studies software art in Tokya and on his spare time he creates some really beatiful sounds using his laptop. I guess you could call the music ambient, or electronica if you'd like. The songs are based around glitchy rythms that stutters forward accompanied by some simple melodies, sometimes field recordings is added to the mix...

|Ideell - Grunn [mir023] - Ideell|
Behind Ideell is 16 year old Alexander Eldefors, from Åre, Sweden. Grunn is his first ep, but it has been lying on my harddrive collecting dust so long that Alexander managed to record and release a beautiful mini-album since I got the ep. To me Grunn sounds like summer nights, the sun slowly starts so set with "Someone had a thought, I know who". When "So beautiful outside, so sad inside" comes along, we can clearly see the stars...

|Maurizio Bianchi - Mokushi XVI, XVI [mir017] - Maurizio Bianchi|
"Mokushi" is the japanese translation of "apocalypse", and all the dictionaries give to it the meaning of "great catastrophe, total disaster, weighty calamity". Simply this is a common place, a cliché which we must demolish. In reality the root of the word "apocalypse" comes from the greek "apokàlypsis", which means "discovery, revealment", and on it we don't find simply a fatalistic message of world's destruction, but a discovery, a revealment of divine truths, the plain truths...
